Jamie Oliviero

Discipline: Storytelling
Homebase: Manitoba
Languages: English

I am a traditionally trained storyteller and arts-in-education specialist. My commitment is a storyteller is to promote social justice and good citizenship by using the wisdom offered in traditional stories to create common ground between people of different cultures, and backgrounds. I have specially designed workshops and performances for students at different grade levels, teachers, community groups, and general audiences. The workshops include activities that develop trust at the group level, and encourage compassionate and peaceful interaction. My performances draw on world folklore: stories that reflect, humour, mystery, wisdom, and adventure.

Stories drawn from world folklore are presented with participation and accompanying activities. These stories reflect the commonalities we share as people rather than our differences. They also remind us of our responsibilities as global citizens, and as planetary citizens. "The brilliance of storytelling is that it is the only and best protection we have against forgetting."- Barry Lopez
